Pentax, make no mistake

The race that stops a nation (no not the US election) the Melbourne Cup where a public holiday for a horse race is enjoyed by Melbournites.

The winner was decided by a photo finish, and guess what they use Pentax equipment, the logo in the corner of the shot reads 'Pentax,' make no mistake' .
About the 24 second mark on the video
Video - Viewed wins Melbourne Cup - Sydney Morning Herald

cheers,
John

Pentax

It was cool seeing Pentax commercials on the speaking cyclops!
Pentax was everywhere. Good to see themselves getting out there.
